My card today is based on a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches 201. Although I was a couple hours late for the deadline to post it on their website, I still wanted to share my card with you. Here's the sketch.
As you may have heard, Montana is battling many forest fires. In addition, smoke from fires in the neighboring stats of Idaho & Washington are also blowing our way. Finally we are beginning to get some clean air & we are seeing the return of our famous blue skies for Big Sky Country!
Are you perplexed by the title of my post? Let me explain it. Because I am happy about the clean air, I can only imagine how happy Snokey the Bear must be with the improvement.
I couldn't resist this cute bear dolled up with a bouquet of leaves and a snappy Old Olive Baker's Twine bow. To reinforce the leaf theme of the bouquet, I used a piece of matching paper from the Into the Woods Designer Series Paper. Behind this, I used the woodgrain paper also from the Into the Woods Designer Series Paper.
With such a happy bear on the front of my card, I wanted an equally happy sentiment on the inside of my card. The stamp set Tin of Cards had just what I wanted with "a happy hello" . A strip of the same leaf paper was used on the inside of the card.
Just a reminder that the 2015 -2016 Holiday Catalog is live today! The supplies used for my card are shown below. If you need any of the new product, please click on the shop now button located at the top of this post to be taken to my Online Store.
